YouTube Responds to Conspiracy-Videos Controversy With Plan to Link to Wikipedia

[CEO Susan Wojcicki] described YouTube’s new counter-conspiracy initiative as providing “information cues”: text boxes linking to Wikipedia and other sources that will show up in videos flagged as promoting alternate facts. For example, on a video questioning whether humans ever actually landed on the Moon, YouTube might provide a link to Wikipedia’s page on the Apollo 11 lunar-landing mission in 1969. – Todd Spangler, Variety http://ift.tt/2tQ0d0W
